[cheers and applause] and we are calling it iphone. >> it is not only a remarkable achievement but a validation of everything that jobs believed in: if you made and controlled all of your own hardware and all of your own software, you could integrate all of your products and all of your content seamlessly into one digital hub. and no one but steve jobs had thought of it. >> this is something microsoft couldn't do 'cause it made software but not the hardware. it's something sony couldn't do 'cause it made a lot of devices, but it didn't really make software operating systems. and so the only company that had end-to-end control was apple. >> biographer walter isaacson writes that jobs had created a walled garden. if you wanted to use any of his products, it was easier to buy into the whole apple ecosystem. it was something only a complete control freak could have pulled off. his pers

, but we're seeing similar delays in places like omaha, tulsa, san francisco, salt lake city also experiencing some major delays because of those weather systems out west. the national weather service issuing winter storm warnings for states like oklahoma and arkansas as well as the southeast which is bracing for severe weather as well. a lot of travelers or we spoke with this morning said they planned very early travel plans in hope os of dodging the later delays we may see later on especially as those storms continue to develop not only in the pacific northwest, but also in the southeast. but conditions are deteriorating here, we're seeing a lot of people saying that they're waiting on the tarmac for up to an hour before their flights take off. that being said, as long as they're home for christmas, a lot of them say they're very, very happy. and one thing i do want to mention, heather, is that we are expecting some serious weather after christmas, so people are already planning for those delays, and they say if you're in that area that's going to get hit, be aware, be prepared.
. delayed a bunch of flights in san francisco yesterday. now it is moving over the mountains and expected to start dumping snow in oklahoma later today into tomorrow. there is also the threat of severe weather in the southeast part of the country tomorrow. then snow possibly wednesday into ohio and thursday, snow and possibly freezing rain in northeast. definitely a lot to pay attention to for travellers over the next coming days. right new at airports, no major problems to report here in atlanta. back to you, maria. >> thank you so much, gabe. we appreciate it. >>> let's find out how this holiday season is fairing with one of the largest airlines. dave barger is here. thanks for joining us. how is the season going? take us from thanksgiving to where we are right now. how does this season compare to prior years? >> i think this season is so different because of superstorm sandy. so what we saw right after thanks giving is a snap back. we have seen solid demand as we get closer to christmas and new year's. there's no doubt on the back side of the events in late october with super storm. it
it in new york and san francisco and seattle and chicago, all of these places, in the london and paris. we see the try um of the developed world cities. but the success of the city in the developed world is nothing relative to what's happening in the developing world. we've recently reached that halfway point where more than half of humanity now lives in urbanized areas, and it's hard not to think on net that's a good thing because when you compare those countries that are more than 50% urbanized, the more urbanized countries have on average income levels that are five times higher and infant mortality levels that are less than a third. gandhi famously said the growth of a nation depends not on its cities, but on its villages. but with all due respect to the great man, on this one he was completely and utterly wrong. because, in fact, the future of india is not made in villages which is too often remaining mired in the unending rural poverty that has plagued most of humanity throughout almostal of its -- almost all of it existence. it is mumbai, it is delhi, that are the pathways out of po
it dumped rain and delayed flights in san francisco. the relatively calm weekend elsewhere was a welcome relief for millions of air passengers after a blizzard prompted more than 1,000 canceled flights late last week in the midwest and northeast. aaa estimates more than 93 million americans will travel this holiday season, most by car. for those drivers lucky enough to avoid the snow and the ice, there's some good news. gas prices down to an average of $3.24 a gallon. that's down almost 20 cents in a month. again, here in atlanta it's a soggy start. there are no delays reported at the major airports so far, but again, that could change as that winter storm makes its way east later this week. natalie, back to you. >> gabe gutierrez, thanks so much. >>> of course, the stores will be packed today with last-minute shoppers. mara is braving crowds in herald square in new york. good morning. >> reporter: good moshg. the doors opened the at 7:00 a.m., and stores are opening their door early and offering deep discounts and big deals to try and lure the last-minute shoppers and those procrastinat
much rain that flood warnings have been issued near san francisco. and in the higher elevations of the sierra mountains, more than three feet of snow trapped drivers for hours over the weekend. as the storm passes over the rocky mountains, it's expected to dump a few feet of snow and disrupt travel at salt lake city airport on christmas eve before piling snow on the midwest today and tomorrow. despite the forecast, one travelers used to polar weather expects to deliver with a little help from his friends. >> i'm going to do everything i can. when rudolph gets that nose on, we're going where we're going any time we got to get there. >> reporter: oklahoma and arkansas could see six inches of snow, and they might even get a little bit of the white christmas here in dallas, a rare event, but the national weather service says possibly an inch or two. rebecca and jeff, back to you. >>> meteorologist jeff berardelli has our forecast. where are the trouble spots? >> good morning, rebecca. it looks like a lot of the country is going to be affected, especially the eastern half. during the
stolen. one san francisco security firm estimates that the market this year for stolen cell phones is more than $30 billion. the fcc says that 30% to 40% of robberies in some of the biggest cities involve cell phones. in washington, d.c., they say it's 38%. in san francisco, police say it's nearly 50%. it's difficult to break out the numbers and break it down by brands, but police have confirmed that the best of apple products is a big business. they call it apple pigging. in new york city in september, the nypd reported theft of apple products was up 40% year over year, and they expect that number to rise over the holiday season. how can shoppers figure out if the devices they're buying are legitimate or stolen? apple phones have serial numbers. those can be traced, of course, if a phone was reported lost or stolen. they'll also be blocked from further use. experts actually say if you're buying used online you should ask for the serial number of the product. david? >> thanks very much, jackie. between hurricane sandy in october and the snowstorms out west over the last few days, p

[laughter] buddhism and its nonviolent -- the san francisco has been a leader for supporting democracy in burma and in supporting aung san suu kyi. buddhism and its non-violence tradition has been a source of strength for the nonviolent democracy movement in burma. but aung san suu kyi has seen her supporters beaten, tortured and killed. she has never responded with hatred and violence. she has asked only for peaceful dialogue and progress for democracy. she has always believed that the need for democracy for all the people of burma was more important than her personal need. indeed, she made great personal sacrifices in terms of her own family as senator feinstein pointed out. one admirer described her as a seeker, a seoul pilgrim, one that makes her life a vehicle for a deeper awakening to truth. aung san suu kyi walks in the footsteps of her beloved father and the giants of history. for her personal sacrifice, for her inner strength, for her love of burma and its people, and for being an example of strength and courage to the world, today we are proud to honor her with the congressio
